DB: A 22-year-old woman who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 was drunk and driving in the wrong direction on Wednesday night when she killed a young mom and seriously injured another driver, authorities said.

Emily Hernandez was driving west in the eastbound lanes in Franklin County, Missouri, just after 7 p.m. when she crashed into another car that spun into the median strip and struck cable barriers, police said. Both vehicles “swerved to avoid each other,” according to a crash report posted by the Missouri State Highway Patrol, but that didn’t spare 32-year-old Victoria Wilson, a passenger in a 2019 Buick Enclave, who perished.

Her husband, 36-year-old Ryan Wilson, who was behind the wheel, and Hernandez were both seriously injured and transported to local hospitals for treatment, according to the Missouri Highway Patrol.

Hernandez was booked Wednesday night on allegations that she was driving while intoxicated resulting in death and serious injury of the couple, according to an arrest report.

Hernandez’s lawyer, Ethan Corlija, told WMOV that his client underwent surgery after the crash and was stable on Wednesday morning but declined to comment on the charges.

“The exact circumstances of the accident are unclear,” Corlija told the outlet. “It’s unfortunate. I am heartbroken for the others involved.”

It’s not the first time that Corlija has defended Hernandez. Weeks after the Capitol riot, he described her to reporters as “the girl next door,” after she appeared smiling in photos after storming the building.

“It’s an unfortunate situation and it’s one she didn’t want to put herself in,” Corlija said at the time. “She’s willing to move beyond it, do the things she needs to do to make it right and get on with the rest of her life.”

Hernandez made her way to the nation’s capital last year for the “Stop the Steal” rally with two others from the St. Louis area. She was among a throng of former President Donald Trump’s supporters who burst through police barricades on Jan. 6 and stormed the Capitol as Congress certified the peaceful transfer of power.

Hernandez infamously appeared in photos carrying a broken sign from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office. She also posted images of herself at the Capitol on Snapchat, according to charging documents.  Read more…

  1. When the bear breaks into the cabin, we do not ask it if it is having a bad day. At that point who would care ?
    We throw innocent people in jail for things they did not do. How much more so for this idiot.

    The expectation of white privilege is off the charts on the Jan 6 examination. It is insulting and embarrassing.
